NYFW Spring 2012 Trend Watch: Mullet Skirts

The following is a guest post from our friends at Lucky.

The term “mullet” is rarely used in a positive light. Generally it conjures up images of bad haircuts, but this fashion week the mullet has a new life—and a chic one at that. The “mullet” skirt has been seen on runways from BCBG to Diane von Furstenberg to Jason Wu. The term is used to describe a skirt that is short in the front and long in the back. These skirts actually remind me more of Toulouse-Lautrec’s cancan dancers from France. Sounds much more elegant than a mullet, no?
